Question: What's going to happen to you when a Good Samaritan saves your life by murdering another man in front of your eyes? Answer: Nothing good, my friend.

This tale is dedicated to Dominic Cabot, who actually does nice things for no reason. Special thanks to Jack Getze at Spinetingler Magazine, who rejected me so many times I was determined to get one by him. Thanks, Jack.

Available in Spinetingler now.
